For the second consecutive year, local schools will take part in the "School Duel" held in conjunction with the Redlands Bicycle Classic on Saturday, April 5. Hundreds of area school-age boys and girls will get to race on the same course as the pros in a friendly competition that rewards the schools with the most participation and the highest placing.
"The School Duel was a great success in its first year. We had great participation from Redlands public schools as well as few of the private institutions," said Scott Welsh, marketing director of the Redlands Bicycle Classic and father of three participants in last year's School Duel. "We are really excited to hear that kids are already starting to buzz about this year's event."
Kimberly Elementary won last year's elementary school contest. For more information, visit www.redlandsclassic.com
